At-Game Recap: Dodgers Debacle (June 27)

I have tried to block this game out of my system after quite a bell-ringer of a hangover. But like facebook with ex-girlfriends, the pictures will always be there.

And as unfortunate and depressing as this game's ending was, the truth of the matter was that AC and I had a pretty fun and enjoyable time at the game, that is until our four-run lead burst into a fiery explosion of death and dismemberment and charred skin falling off the bodies of naked children running down the street screaming in vain for their parents who have been destroyed in the blast.

Aside from that minor speedbump, it was a great time.

The partially-obscured guy in the black-and-white shirt, standing next to James Loney, is Kenny Lofton (who was up on Diamondvision later in the game). Don't worry, my celebrity shots improve from here.

Who is our opponent again? Oh, yeah. (Admittedly this is not the best video in the world. Steven Spielberg is not interested.)

Kershaw takes the mound, kids take the field.

Are there weak advertising campaigns at baseball games? Think about it.

The crowd was so entranced by the game itself, a beachball lay untouched and unwanted on the ground. Awesome.

Belliard after his home run.

Yasmin, you may be my destiny...

...but this girl still has my heart. Alyssa Milano, ladies and gentlemen.

And speaking of public figures, who is that with the cute date and big-ass arm tattoo?

That's right, it's Mr. Britney Spears, Kevin Federline!

And lucky for him, K-Fed was able to find jerseys numbered appropriately for his waistline size!

Unlike K-Fed, some people can even tuck in their jersey, debuting a look that is sure to sweep the nation. AND, these people can wear an iPhone belt clip, too. Take that, Schneider.

Ronnie Belliard, and the smirkiest close-up photo Diamondvision has ever seen.

And now, a little bit of seriousness. There are some readers who have inquired a lot about us Sons, through comments and emails. Who are the Sons? Are they multiple people, or just one person with multiple personalities? Do they even exist?

Given we're in the fourth year of our blog, we figured it's time to take down some of our walls of secrecy and let people have some peeks behind the curtain. So without further ado, here's AC and Sax (in no particular order), from Sunday's game.

I've met Sax. Though it may look like it, he is not holding a glove up to his face in that photo.

Mr. Customer said...

Try some sunscreen fellas. Your starting look a bit leathery.

Dusty Baker said...

Sax was a child star in the beloved animated series, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

I like the LA Times headline today:

"Casey Blake does some long overdue yard work in Dodgers' 4-2 win over Giants"

Fred's Brim said...

I like the blonde ponytail in the last pic. Is that real or extensions?

Steve Sax said...

Only the hair stylist knows for sure

Josh S. said...

I just re-read the game thread in full. I think the funniest subplot was Mr. Customer vs. the iPad keyboard.

Alex Cora said...

Dammit - you got my bad side....

Josh S. said...

Tell David Lynch to stop texting during the game.

Neeebs said...

The funniest part of the SOSG photos is the fact that both sons brought their gloves to the game. I stopped taking my glove to the game in 1975. I'm a bare hand grabber now. The trick is to play the rebound. Works every time.

Steve Sax said...

Neeebs, I always had you picked for a bare hand grabber.

Josh S. said...

@Neeebs:

There was a guy in front of me and Dusty at the Dodgers/Angels game on the 11th that tried to catch a line drive foul ball barehanded. That was a sickening smack. He shook it off, though.

Steve Sax said...

And what makes you think those were our gloves?...

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S: No glove, no love.

Neeebs said...

@Sax:

My observation skills determined that there were two distinct gloves. Hence, probably brought in by each of you. If they were borrowed gloves for props, you would have used the same glove.

@Josh:

Bare handers leave the line drives to others...and hope for a carom.

First it was DB and the right handed specialist comment. Now its bare handers. What has this blog become?

Dusty Baker said...

As Josh said, that dude was cold smacked on his hand by the foul ball. I consider that a teachable moment for myself and will, in the future, never attempt to barehand a ball coming toward me that hard. I want a foul ball, but not that bad. Nor do I want to miss, and have it hit my face.

@Neeebs a place where ladies read and blush. Or junior/high school...

I read a Nic J's comment about Jenna Jameson and DPs. I thought she was an adult movie star and checked it. Don't understand the analogy the comment but I don't want to, sometimes ignorance is a blessing.

karina said...

@Mr C when I read the post, that's why I wanted to comment.

Sax, I dig when your complexion is blue.

Dusty Baker said...

Did you get your Guays straight yet, Josh? That was a funny Tweet.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Karina

Definitely Junior High.

Josh S. said...

@DB Yeah, I don't think I'm going to be asked to be grand marshal of the Guay Pride Parade this year.

Neeebs said...

@Karina:

I think that most of the off-color banter here is relatively tame and often witty. You and a few others balance out the testosterone that sometimes rises to the surface here. I hope we don't offend you.

karina, I promise to make this a better and more witty blog as soon as I graduate from middle school

Neeebs said...

@Sax:

Don't take it too far past high school level. You'll put it way out of my league. Lord knows that I can't even hang with the puzzles anymore. Sophomoric humor is all I look forward to these days.

karina said...

@Neeebs you're the sweetest. Most of my friends are men and they tend to forget I'm a girl and believe me, I've heard way much worse. I blush every time and I think that's an excuse for them to mock me.

@Steve Sax I love this site just the way it is. You can stay in middle school forever, if you feel like it.

Steve Sax said...

Karina, are you saying you'd date me even though I'm in middle school? I got skillz!

karina said...

@Sax why not? I'm in elementary school after all. Do you mind if I can't read well?

Steve Sax said...

karina, you had me at hello.
